helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

These dreamy lacy lanterns are only $2.99 at IKEA! Perfect for a tealight or votive.

These adorable lanterns are from IKEA for $4.99!

Saw these darling, recycled glass bud vases at Target for $2.50 each.

Found these oil lamps at Old Time Pottery in Murfreesboro… $5 each. Aren’t the colors perfection?

More Old Time Pottery finds… each of these pieces are under $1 each!!!

Don’t forget my lovely new blue Ball mason jars! :) As of today, I’ve got 30 of them headed my way!

Found this pic on this post by Brooklyn Bride… this is a bit of inspiration for our tables. We are planning to do burlap runners on our round tables. :) Perhaps I will make some napkins out of some different styles of country yellow cloths… it would be too cute. :) I’m hoping to do a collection of different jars, vases, etc in the middle of the tables, with candles and a few flowers… very minimal, very eclectic, very chic. :)

Picture from here. See the different-patterned-but-same-color-scheme napkins? LOVE.

    i was a bride on a serious budget once! You should check out both vintage glam weddings blog and Once Wed blog. Both have classified sections where you can purchase gently used centerpieces, votives, candles….well anything wedding related. :) It’s worth checking out!

    I’m going for the same look – multiple vases/glasa containers/jars etc. Check out your local freecycle.org – I’ve gotten 40 or so vases and mason jars I need for free.

    I love those ikea lamps. I’d love some just for outside my place. Cute.

    For some reason Photobucket isn’t allowing a couple of pics to load. Girl– You are after my own heart! I have a vast collection of those blue Ball jars that I’ve been collecting for ages. I plan to use a couple as vases for centerpieces (and doing different types of vases on different tables). I was originally going to do burlap runners– but then switched to khaki tablecloths on the dining tables with white linens and burlap runners on the cake table and buffet! Too funny! Great minds think alike!

    Aww, the last two pics look great, but Photobucket’s “bandwidth exceeded” message came up on the others.

    I’ve worked with photobucket but found it such a nuisance I switched to Flickr, and now I don’t have as much hassle exceeding limits…
    Also, may I recommend saving your pics as .jpg and not .bmp? I have to convert every picture I save (which is quite a lot, sorry) to .jpg to manage them in my files easily. But perhaps you have a reason to save them as .bmp’s… I don’t know…
    Good luck! It’s looking great so far!

    I’m in love with the ball mason jars also. What size are those? I’m not sure if we should use a quart or half gallon size for our 60″ tables. Any ideas?
